Is it really free?

Generally, using Gumtree is free, but there’s a limit to the freebies. Apparently, certain services attract a service fee depending on the what you need.

However, if the services you need require payment, you’ll be asked to review and accept the terms that will be clearly disclosed at the time you post your ad. Thus, you will be responsible for paying the Gumtree fees when the time comes.

Stipulated rules for Gumtree users

  • Users have to be eighteen years old and above.
  • You can only have one account. This is because fees are per person, not per account. Thus, if you’re caught using more than one account to avoid posting fees, you will be cut off.
  • When setting up your account, add the right information to the right fields to avoid clustering. That way, you’ll have more room to describe what you are bringing to the market.
  • Also, endeavour to use clean, clear and accurate photos. Don’t make the mistake of using the pictures to lie about what you’re selling.
  • Don’t add links to other websites in your ad. There is a special field for this when you post your ad.
  • Always choose the best category for your ad.
  • English is the official language. Vernacular is not allowed.
  • One ad per item, and one item per ad. Also, just so nobody gets confused, don’t post duplicate ads.
  • Make sure you have the item at hand before you try to sell it.
  • No spam is allowed to maintain a clean community.
  • There are certain things you are not allowed to sell on Gumtree Durban or any Gumtree site. Take a look here.
  • In conclusion, if you have sold it, take the ad down to avoid confusion.

Penalty for breaking the rules

Your ads will be removed if you keep breaking the rules. While you will receive an email with a clear explanation on why your ad was removed, you might not get a refund for payments made if the situation continues.
